Executive coaching: effectiveness, results, satisfaction
I offer one-to-one executive coaching to specialists, managers, directors, high potentials and heads of businesses. I coach committed and driven individuals, both face-to-face and remotely.
Why executive coaching?
Throughout your career and life you face challenges and opportunities. How do you best respond to them?
How do you best take a new role, shape the legacy you want to leave, address specific recurring issues, embrace new territories, give the best of yourself and reach balance and satisfaction?
Executive coaching is a proven and well-established approach to help you increase your performance.

Through a series of confidential one-to-one conversations, I help you clarify what matters to you, what you want to achieve and what will take you there.
As your coach, I am here to listen and partner with you to help you understand what is at stake and what actions suit you. I help you through my observations, feedback and challenges. Meetings can be face-to-face or virtual, using modern technology. Between sessions you implement and reflect.

People report an array of benefits from coaching. “Stepping back” and “taking time for myself” is seen as precious and rare.
Through the structure of the coaching programme and mutual commitment, this space is created. A lot emerges from those conversations that accelerate your learning and invite you to look at things from different perspectives. As a result, you become more effective, more aligned with your values. You replace old ways of living and working by new ones that are more effective.
There is a direct correlation between your commitment to the journey and the benefits you find. Executive coaching is not “done” to you; it is a journey you shape.
